Snood or ...

Mediaeval chain mail helmet? Mum spotted a picture of a snood (really a scarf with a hood) in a knitting mag I bought in December. I even splashed out on nice wool to make this, but it hasn't turned out as the photo despite following the pattern. The hood is far too big and the scarf part too small... Grrr... Will see tomorrow if she likes it or not.

baa baa

Another crochet project. Very difficult to crochet in snowflake wool but worth the trouble. Hiding this one so it doesn't get kidnapped ;-)

mother goose

I have been asked to knit/ crochet some Easter items for a raffle. This is the Alan Dart 'Mother Goose' pattern. Much more fiddly than I was expecting!

I haven't gone that mad, this is another crochet project. Cute?

Chirpy Chick

I think this has to be my favourite project out of those made so far. What do you think?

Discrentalled Dino

Seeing this design in my new amigurumi book, I just knew I HAD to make it! A characture of myself at times? Perhaps!

French frog!

I treated myself to the Amigurumi book from Amazon by Bui and Wan before Christmas. Love the designs. This was my first project :-)

Wooly woof!

Sadly  I am away from my normal crafting for a while :-( doing some knitting, crochet etc to amuse myself/ make time pass quicker. This was the first project. The pattern is from a recent magazine. I changed the colours. I'm not so sure about the result..
